On tap this week: commercial property problems, 5-Hour Law & Ethics Updates, modern transit risks, and personal lines drama. I could go on but your attention span is crashing harder than an inebriated tourist on a rented scooter so I’ll get to it. Here are this week’s highlights:
- Directly or indirectly, your insured is SOL (without proper insurance.) Join coveted coverage master Robin Federici Tuesday afternoon for this helpful Webinar on the differences between direct and indirect commercial property damage and how to insure both.
- Give me (and my special guest) five! Property & Casualty licensees friends: join yours truly and special guest Barry Lanier from the FSLSO Wednesday morning and we’ll knock out your law/ethics update together.
- Because some riders are drunk. I’m back in the hotseat Wednesday afternoon to discuss insurance concerns with autonomous vehicles, rental scooters and other modern transit risks.
- Pandemic parents, remote work, and other personal lines drama. Join electric instructor Nicole Broch for a Thursday afternoon romp through the jungle of “new normal” personal lines risks and how to insure them.
- Claims Adjuster licensee friends: this one’s for you. Join yours truly Friday morning and we’ll knock out your law/ethics update together.
For more info about what we’re up to, see the list below and/or review the full Webinar Schedule on the website.
Finally, if you’re an unapologetic lover of our fine state be sure to gallop (hint hint) to the bottom of this newsletter for a little something special.
That’s all for now. Until the next round…cheers!

FASCINATING FACTOID FOR FANATICAL FLORIDIANS –
You remember the scene: a professional football game played in Tampa. On one side, the home team captained by the aging legend. On the other, the visiting squad led by the sport’s youthful, electric star.
Obviously I’m talking about a game played in 1926.
The first professional football game played in Tampa was played on New Year’s Day in 1926 between the Chicago Bears and the Tampa Cardinals. The Bears were led by hotshot rookie Harold “Red” (the Galloping Ghost) Grange. The Cardinals were a pickup team put together by the legendary Jim Thorpe. The Ghost’s Bears prevailed 17-3 in front of an estimated 10,000 fans at Plant Field. This article includes great info about that game as well as other fascinating history of football in the Tampa area and is definitely worth a read.
